    Has "thrown under the bus" kind of "jumped the shark"?

    It seems like "thrown under the bus" is an incredibly overused term now. Especially used on both sides of the Wes/McD "situation". It was cute at first, but has definately reached its quota on this board in the past 72 hours.

    Just my thoughts. Please don't throw me under a truck for this observation.


    Edit:: I'm an idiot. I don't know what I did to get this under the Football forum. I guess I don't start enough threads to know what I am doing.

    I'm tying you to the train tracks....


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    I bet you get thrown under the bus for this comment. I had not used that saying yet so I figured I could use it at least once.

    Does this include "I don't have a horse in the race" or can that be a separate over used saying.

    Has "Jumped the shark" jumped the shark?

    The one that I can't stand and is very overused is:
    "It is what it is."

    This goes right along with my LOL thread last week.

    tube1, I think you jumped the shark by posting this thread. ;)

    You are dead on with this. I have been using "throw ____ under the bus" in my everyday life a ton the last 2 days. It has infiltrated my life.
